    when you say "pops" is it like something coming out? or something crunching in the knee? like bone to bone? it could be arthritis, or the begining of it. Cold weather at times makes it worse, if you feel is so, go see your doctor, he can help you with some medication if pain starts getting worse.

    Good luck and good health ^i^♥

    For heaven's sake, stop bending your knees.

    Sounds like old age is setting in, for I am nearly 70 and every

    thing crunches. It's a calcium buildup that comes lose when

    you move your bones, so to speak. If you feel better, see your

    doctor and get some x-rays of your knees. He can better tell

    you what's happening. Good luck.

    a good massage might work well for you

    also concider taking vitamins for your bones

    which can be extremely helpful ... a vitamin

    store person or doctor can help decide what

    vitamins are best for you...i would strongly

    advise seeing a doctor for better

    assistance. good luck hope your knee gets better!

    Mine does that too.

    If it gets to hurting a little, put a heating pad on it. Mine does it when it is cold. Has it always done this or did it just start?

    If it just started, you may have tweaked it while lifting something, or even walking on rough ground.
